The Gables, Clark and Carole

Hi All,
Some of you know that I have collected on Carole Lombard since I have been 20 yrs old.  Hmmmmm, that makes it around 36 yrs I have been collecting and reading about her.  She was such a terrific gal.  She could walk in to today's world and not miss a beat.  Her life tragically ended in 1942, in a plane crash.  She was returning to her husband, Clark Gable.  She had been selling war bond in her hometown of Ft. Wayne, IN.  She was only 33.  A bright spirit was lost that day.
March 29, 1939 was the day Gable and Lombard were married, so tomorrow would have been their 74th!
 Wedding Day March 29, 1939
 Another shot
 Love this one
 The diamond and ruby clips she is wearing on her hat and neckline, were a gift from Gable.  She was wearing them at her death.  Gable wore a chip of one of the pieces found in the wreckage, around his neck
 The beautiful ranch, Encino.  I was lucky enough to see it from the end of the drive
 One of my favorites from the ranch
 Too cute!
 Another favorite, on the tailgate of their woody wagon, used for hunting trips
Something enticed me to read this book, when I was 20.  I have been hooked on Carole, ever since!
 
Happy Easter to all.

I love your header, what a fabulous shot with you next to your great looking oven!! Anyway, I'm hooked on vintage Hollywood actors and movies, of course. I have a small collectin of old movies, just adore them! Yes, I love Clark Gable and so, pretty and sweet Carole. Thanks for sharing this post. Happy and blessed Easter for you and yours.

They were a cute couple. I'd like to think that if she had lived, their marriage would have endured.

Larry Swindell is a terrific biographer. He wrote the John Garfield I enjoy so much.

Finally, your post reminded me that my own maternal grandparents would be celebrating 74 years this year. They were married April 29, 1939.

She was definitely ahead of her time. Had she lived, her life would have continued to be amazing. And they made a beautiful, fun couple.

XO,

Carol Cook said...

I know that were a sweet couple, but don't know much about her. I always loved Clark Gable.

Thanks for filling me in a little about her.

What a tragic loss. I had forgotten about this. They were a stunning couple and looked like they were so much in love. Wonder if his broken heart ever mended? Thanks for sharing this fun history and great photos with Share Your Cup.
hugs,

Ruthie Miller said...

What a great post. I loved seeing her. When I was a young girl, I visited my grandparents and they had a biography of Clark with many pictures in it. I feel in love with both of them then. They really seemed to have the real thing. What a tragedy. I commend you for keeping her "alive".
